The immaculately kept Willow Park is a gated 55+ community. It is truly an urban setting in a suburb. This mobile park backs onto a green space like no other. There are endless hiking trails weaving their way around Mt. Benson, to Westwood Lake, a jewel of a park that has it all; sparkling clear waters to swim, fish and kayak in, and of course a fabulous beach area where you work on your tan. Morrell Sanctuary and Buttertubs Marsh are yet two more wonderful areas where you can stretch your legs and breath in the smells and sights of nature.
Colliery Dams are just a stone's throw away, also boasting beaches and lakes to cool off in. This area too, has great biking and hiking trails, and not a bad place to through a line in the water!
Need something more challenging? A short car ride away, and you can take a rope ladder down to majestic Ammonite Falls, hike up to the magnificent massive crack in the Earth called The Abyss, or really give yourself a workout, and head to the top of Mt. Benson.
While it has that urban feel, Willow Park has all the amenities of the suburbs. The streets in this friendly community are superbly tidy and well-groomed There is plenty of shopping nearby . . . University Village Mall has a variety of shops and stops - including fast food outlets, a pharmacy, a grocery store, and a Bingo Hall.
The new upscale Quality Foods Harewood makes dining easy with a choice of two cafeterias, both with indoor and patio seating, a licenced pub, and a deli/rotisserie with every possible take-out meal you can dream of.
